Advantages of AMD A10-5700

Less power hungry (65 vs 180 watts)
3DNow! (older SIMD instructions set used by AMD CPUs. Supercedes MMX, works with 64-bit registers)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)

Advantages of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2920X

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 32 nm)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2 - an extension to AVX, the set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
